A 20 MB HD will probably have a type (from 1 to 46, I believe) and the 100 MB *may* be one of these. Otherwise, you need to pick type 47. If the BIOS isn't able to autodetect the new HD then you have to enter Cylinders/Heads/Sectors manually. These numbers will be on the hard drive itself or in the manual that came with it. Or, you may be able to search the manufacturers web page. Bryan - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail email@example.com.
